In 2016, when I was going through the psychic attack that catapulted me into my current level of spiritual work, I discovered the hard way that sage does not work as well as the popular New Age teachings say it does.
In fact, I had been in the middle of doing a video demonstration for my students in which I was teaching the basics of how to use sage, when, you guessed it, an entity showed up right there on camera. I had literally just demonstrated how to burn sage, and then moments later, the entity began to form behind me over my left shoulder.
Later, I was watching the video for editing purposes, and I was SO pissed when I saw that entity! It was like it was mocking me by showing up at that exact moment. That's when I learned that demons and other negative entities are not afraid of sage. Soon after, one of my former mentors confirmed this for me because she had made this same observation in her many years of paranormal house clearings.
But, just like everything in life, it's not always so simple.
In our recent Facebook Live in the free Psychic Protection Sanctuary Facebook group, I had our wonderful guest, Stephanie Hart back again as we had an intriguing discussion about the differences between sage and frankincense for spiritual cleansing, which works better, and how we personally use each one.
